No Car was awesome and still is would have ran it in HBB if I would of had a 2nd body mounted My Choke Master

 

went on the fritz took me 2+ heats to figure that was the problem My Motor still Won OMB and ran 1-2 in HBB 4 of us ran the short narrow in HBB  Al had the best car Justin ran a My Red Fox

 

4.05 Car Bernie and Michael also ran the short Narrow Al cars They were fine in Practice but in the A Main I guess the little more rubber made them sad on Black still it was a great Time

Was a fun race even with the low turnout. Mikes stories are always great. Cant thank Jason, Michael, Al and Bernie enough for the help, advice and loaners, couldnt have done it without you guys.

I came in just hoping to win a main and I was able to not only do that but the class. Along with a TQ to boot.

Hoping to make next years nats to see how Ill fair against a larger group

Thanks to Mike for hosting a great event, even if you wouldnt let me play with my retro cars...lol
